Striking Fenton glass
The Fenton Art Glass Company had a long history of decorating glass dating right back to their origins in 1905. Initially a decorating company, they purchased blanks from glass manufacturers and placed their own range of recognisable decorations on them. Fenton was the first artistic glass company to introduce carnival glass, which went on to become highly collectable.
Fenton started producing Hobnail items in milk glass. Hobnail glass features bumps all over with plenty of hobnail patterns and variations made. Clear, coloured, and opalescent hobnail have been made and are reproduced. Hobnail milk glass was Fentons top-selling line allowing the Fenton company to expand. Fenton Art Glass Companys Hobnail pattern came out in 1940 and is still made today.
